Tasting Note:

Intense and powerful but with a very fine, tight-knit structure. It takes coaxing out of the glass at first and this wine certainly has a sense of there being plenty in reserve but with it air it does starts to expand gently and discretely.

Fermented with whole bunches and aged in large demi-muid casks, a maximum of 10% of which are new.
